This week at the Mill we’re recovering from some Hallowe’em sugar hangovers (is the Freddie Krueger movie marathon still going…?), wrapping up warm for November, and getting the place nice and tidy. We’re excited to be welcoming a group of creative hub managers all the way from the Philippines this week, as part of the British Council Creative Innovators Fellowship, a professional development programme that helps creative hubs become more sustainable and impact-led. Delegates will meet Mill artists and exchange ideas about artist-run spaces and more. We’re looking forward to making new international friends.

Meanwhile, here’s what else is going on around and about…

// It’s your last few days to catch SUBI at Castlefield Gallery. A collaboration between UK and Korean artists focusing on ceramics and the various materialities of clay. Includes work by John Powell-Jones of Islington Mill. Until 4 Nov.

// For the whole of this month you can see large-scale work from Emma Talbot at Caustic Coastal with accompanying pieces at Salford Lads Club. The new work sees the artist reflect on birth/death and the ‘sleepwalk’ of life. Until 1 December (check event page for opening times).

// The next creative workshop from Salford Makers is a super cool perspex jewellery makingsession on 3 November. Great for Christmas! Be sure to check what’s on offer from their full calendar of workshops.

// Speaking of Christmas, can you believe it’s that time already etc etc? There’s exciting news coming soon about Christmas at the Mill so circle the date in your ratty old diary till Santa brings you a new one: 6 December.

// This year the Islington Mill Art Academy turns 10 years old, and this month the diverse group of artists who make up the Academy will embark on an exciting year of creative challenges, devised by themselves. We will be checking in with them soon for news about their exciting developments so keep reading.

// Don’t forget you can follow us on Twitter and on Instagram too!

// Okay, time for tunes. impaTV filmed David Terry at his Caustic Coastal refrigeration unit gig so now you can enjoy deep/strange vocal and accordion ensembles all for yourself.
